Reset maintanice light


Undo your battery for a couple of minutes worked on the older models. I believe this is the procedure for yours.
Turn ignition key to 'ON' and press the odometer button until the display reads ODO... not Trip A or B.
Turn ignition key to OFF.
Hold in the same button you used in step 1.
While holding the button in, turn ignition key to 'ON'.
ODOMETER will change to
5 dashes - - - - -
Then 4 dashes - - - -
Then 3 dashes - - -
Then 2 dashes - -
Then 1 dash -
THEN all zeros 0 0 0 0 0
Then back to the correct mileage
The Maintenance Required light should blink and go out.

Sounds like it was not flushed properly and bleed of air pockets. Many engines have bleed screws to bleed all the air out when refilling.

Citroen dispatch diagnostic codes


Don't know if this works but I read somewhere recently that if you hold down the odometer reset and switch the ignition on and off it will display the codes, and then you just Google them.

Reset service interval alarm on VW Passat-01?


This is a mileage interval light that trips every 3,000 to 5,000 miles that indicates an oil change is necessary. You do not need a special tool to change your oil, nor do you need to bring the car in to the dealer.
1. Sit in the driver's seat of the Passat and close all the doors.
2. Position the trip/odometer button to display the odometer mileage reading, then hold it down with the forefinger on your left hand.
3. Turn the ignition key to the "key-on/engine-off" position to turn on all the power options for the Passat without actually starting the engine. At this point, a service indicator light will display (in the form of a wrench).
4. Press the minute adjustment button on the clock (or turn the knob clockwise on European manufactured Passats) and release the trip/odometer button.
Good luck and thank you using Fixya

Replaced battery on 98 Porsche Boxster and now odometer is wrong


I had the same problem and was about to take the car to the dealership tomorrow, but I decided to try disconnecting the battery and see if it would reset itself. When I reconnected the battery the odometer mileage went back to where it was before I changed the battery. It worked!

Maybe it will work for you. Good luck!
